I haven't had as much free time as I would like recently but these are my must watch movies for you guys for the month of March!
1. Great Expectations - This movie is one of those that changes your opinion and the way your mind works. You will be thinking about it for days after watching it. Any movie that makes you FEEL something that strong is so important to watch! Goes over a lot of synchronicities and how people and things arent't always what we think they are. It was made in 1998 and is an adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel starring Gwyneth Paltrow. WATCH THIS!
2. Happy - This documentary really made a huge impact on me and how happiness is not something you can really look for it's within all of us. This follows people from all walks of life and shows what happiness is to each person, really a great eye opener and makes you appreciate so much more in your life!
(PS IT'S NOT A GERMAN SUBTITLE MOVIE IGNORE THAT ON THE TRAILER HAHA)
3. Game Of Thrones - Ok, so this isn't a movie I know. This series is so amazing that it's taken over my life! You must watch this! The plot of fantasy, fashion and some serious warrior vibes make it one of my favorite series that ever existed!
4. Peaceful Warrior - My friend convinced me to watch this, I must be honest it is a little cheesy but redeems itself with the amazing message and teachings you will take away from this! This is another film that changes the way you think on a daily basis, anyone intrested in the awakening and spiritual lessons this one is for you!
Now go make some olive oil sea salt popcorn, a pot of tea and stay in bed and have a movie day!
The Spring Equinox has arrived, and it is the best time for you to create new intentions for what you want to manifest this year.
What you decide to create when the Sun goes into Aries will have great power behind it.
These ideas will most likely create real things in your life-so be careful what you choose!
Be sure and take advantage of this once-a-year great creative potential by meditating right at the Spring Equinox, and be sure to write these intentions down.
You will be amazed to see the "seeds" of your ideas sprout during the next three months, come into bloom during the Summer Solstice period, and be harvested in the fall; then you will be able to evaluate the results in relation to your whole life during the winter months.
So, what did you learn about last year's creative process during the completion of the Winter Solstice period? Did you take on too much a year ago, and then you could not complete it?
Or, did you choose to manifest something really important, did it actually happen, and is it be the perfect basis for creating something more this season? Did you create a really major physical change in your life, and now it is time to handle the emotional, financial, and/or social repercussions?
Think deeply about these questions because last year was an amazing year to manifest things; this year the manifestation process will be subtle, yet just as potent. Don't waste this day!
I have been playing catch since traveling for 6 weeks straight. Only have to go to Delaware and NYC twice this week. Not terrible. Trying to focus on the Crystal Cactus relaunch... sorry it is taking so long. I have 350 products on the store that sold out in 48 hours so im trying to relaunch it with about double that and it's taking time as everything is hand made! Gold lace crowns, snake necklaces, tarot cards, crystal rings, bath detox salts, dagger pendants and more! Will be well worth the wait. I watched the entore first two episodes of Game Of Thrones in less then a week, Khalessi is the most amazinf character ever.
Im learning that you get NOTHING handed to you, nothing in life comes without it's price. If something seems to good to be true it normally is. There is nothing pessimistic about this, just personal observations. There needs to be an energy exchange for something you don't just get things handed to you, there is always something behind the scenes going on.
I just picked up a ton of fresh fruit, plants and water colors. Im spending my sunday night surrounded by nature and raw food painting in cream colored lace.
current obsessions: pineapples, soul mates, orcale readings, orange juice, detox baths, painting, ellie goulding, white candles, universal exchanges, breaking bad, lavender incense, cream roses
Over sized jewelry is pretty much the only kind I own. To me that is the outfit, the statement. I can wear a big black t-shirt, chunky boots and sunglasses and look like a mess, but if I add in layers of thick gold jewelry suddenly it becomes glamourous instantly! I feel like this look is perfect for the stylish working girl on the go. I can't always dress in pretty silk skirts and high heels, I'm always running all over the city and trying to squeeze as much into a day as possible. Comfort is important with a busy lifestyle and I feel this trend is more then on key for that girl! You will find me decked out in overloaded big jewelry with simple clothing 80% of the time! This outfit was inspired by our sponsor FUZE®.
- * 1 cup soy milk/ almond milk or vanilla soy creamer
- * 1/4 cup flour/ i used brown rice flour
- * 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- * 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- * 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- * coconut oil for the pan
- * 6 slices of whole wheat or rice bread
1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the soy milk and flour. Once the flour is well incorporated, whisk in the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla until throughly combined. There will be a little lumps left in the batter, that's ok.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. The coconut oil will be very important throughout this process. You will learn by trial and error what is too much or too little. Remember that the bread will absorb some of the oil so add a little extra in preparation for that.
3. Dredge each slice of bread in the soymilk mixture, let sit for a minute or two and add the hot oil. Cook the French toast until each slice is golden brown, approximate 2-3 minutes per side.
4. Top with vegan powdered sugar, strawberries and pure maple syrup.
Takes about 15 minutes total and it's so delicious you will be hooked!
This post brought to you by Intel. All opinions are 100% mine.
This past Sunday, I was invited to attend the Intel Science Talent Search in beautiful Washington D.C., an incredible event that showcased some of the brightest young up-and-coming minds! I stayed at the super nice Westin Hotel, which wasn't too far from the iconic White House.
The show - which was basically a not-so-typical science fair (no baking soda volcanoes here!) - brought together 40 high school students from around the country, each hand-selected by technological leader Intel to compete for prizes worth over $630,000! (Past winners and attendees have even won Nobel prizes - can you imagine?!)
The grand prize for the event itself is a $100,000 - a deserving prize for any of the brilliant, hard-working high school students I met at the event. (Seriously, these kids were geniuses!)
While inside the Intel STS show, which was held at the gorgeous National Geographic Society, I was blown away by all the creativity and intelligence of the kids showing their projects. I met so many incredibly talented young students, and learned about their interesting science projects that covered everything from sustainable agriculture to advanced cancer research. Not going to lie - some of the projects and exhibitions I saw I could barely understand! Believe me when I say these kids were smart - not just "A student smart," but "future-world-leaders smart" in the sense that these are the science rockstars who are going to build and shape the future of our global community. I think the coolest part about the event though was watching the young teens just be, well, teenagers! Watching them mix and mingle and catch up excitedly with their friends, family, and peers was so humbling. It's hard to imagine that these brilliant kids have normal lives - but many of them do!
My favorite was a project by 18 year old Chris Traver, who was able to study noise pollution by location via technology like smartphones. He equipped his subjects with an app on their smartphones that allowed them to track noise levels in their local communities. It really opened my eyes to all the noise that surrounds us in a city atmosphere!
Another memorable standout was by 17 year old Westview high schooler Raghav Tripathi whose project theorized the design for a nonaddictive painkiller with effects similiar to that of cannibis but without the side effects. Can you imagine a prescription-grade painkiller that is safe without the chances of someone becoming addicted to it? Raghav can! Pay attention to these young scientists - they are the inventors and saviors of our very future! Thank you again to Intel for having me. It was such an eye-opening experience!

When the flower print mix match trend came back into style it was like my heart melted! I have been following Japanese street style since I was a kid, that is primarily where I learned to mix and match patterns. Mixing light, dark, big, bold flower prints has been a very large staple in my personal wardrobe for over a year now. There is something about the girly yet edgy look that is right up my alley. I think anyone can wear this trend but it is important to pick the style that speaks to you. Confidence is the best accessory any girl can wear! This outfit was inspired by our sponsor FUZE® Strawberry Lemonade.
I feel like every minute im awake im listening to music. Currently getting ready to go back to NYC in the morning for the Ace Hotel Dita Von Teese event, where im doing a private interview with her, then a few events and magazine shoots. Look forward to coming back and resting next week. I have been on the go for almost two months now. Busy is better then bored I suppose.
Accupuncture has turned me into jello, my body is trying to get it's self together. All I want to do is drink green juices and lay in suana's. I learned this new amazing reiki treatment where I can open and restore people's third eye chakra's.. I have been practicing it a lot and feel rather drained. The more I practice the stronger I get, the only down side is the exhaustion that comes with energy work.
Im wearing a pink faux fur sweater drinking blueberry green tea about to do some readings and a avocado face mask. Sunday's are ment to be lazy... when you have a list of things to do it is still important to make time for yourself.
Just days after going blonder for her big Oscar-winning debut, Jennifer Lawrence was spotted leaving the Rossano Ferretti HairSpa in Beverly Hills rocking some chocolate locks. You know what that means! Katness is back, Im a huge Lawrence and Hunger Games fan... it can't come soon enough!
DO YOU PREFER HER BLONDE OR DARK?
